The first official trailer for the final season of the show has been released, and it has us awfully excited. The eight season of the popular fantasy drama will premiere in April, nearly two years after season seven. Winter is officially here.

The eight and final season of "Game of Thrones" will debut its eighth and final season starting in April. The video is less than a minute long, but it's something new and interesting to dissect while we wait for the show's final season to kick off this spring.

HBO plans to send Game of Thrones out in epic fashion, and while the final season will only feature six episodes, it seems that the scale of the series will only grow in stature.

The series is based on novels by George RR Martin in a series called A Song of Ice and Fire.

President Trump reaches truce with Chinese officials
The Chinese government has repeatedly dismissed U.S. accusations that it uses underhand means to get hold of American technology. China imposed a retaliatory 25% tariff on imports of cars from the US over the summer in response to Trump's own tariffs.

In the clip the painted table at Dragonstone - a large carved wooden map of Westeros - is being engulfed by fire and ice. However, it also could be a reference to Jon Snow, who we now know officially is a combination of ice and fire - being both a Stark and a Targaryen. Every time a Game of Thrones season comes, the trailer comes before 3 months.

After killing dragon Viserion and reanimating him as a Wight, the Night King destroyed The Wall.

Created by David Benioff and DB Weiss, the show's star-studded ensemble cast includes Kit Harington, Emilia Clark, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey.
